A Day in the Death of Joe EggToby Stephens and Claire Skinner (best known for her role as the mother in Outnumbered) star in Peter Nichols' bittersweet comedy A Day in the Death of Joe Egg. Inspired by Nichols' own experience of bringing up his disabled daughter in the 1960s, Joe Egg was one of the ground-breaking plays of its generation. It addresses, with heart breaking black humour, the issues faced by two parents, Bri and Sheila, struggling to care for their disabled 10-year old daughter Josephine. Nicknaming her 'Joe Egg', they lose themselves in fantasy games to help cope with the struggle of their daily reality. The play is, according to Michael Billington, reviewing it for The Guardian back in 2001, "a study in female resilience and the power of the life force". Simon Evans, who directed Killer Joe starred Orlando Bloom here at Trafalgar Studios, directs.

 

About Trafalgar Studios

The Trafalgar Studios are two venues housed within what was London's Whitehall Theatre. The building itself is Grade II listed, and is an excellent example of simple, unadorned Art Deco style. The interior, however, is spectacular, with complex, cubist designs and sweeping curves of moulding and ironwork. More about Trafalgar Studios
